Mental Illness and Compounded Vulnerability
This website investigates how the label of mental illness can compound vulnerabilities in historically disadvantaged populations. Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder is one such label. We offer proposals for the APA and DSM Committees.
We are grateful to Dr. Maggie Little for her inspiration, feedback, and support. This graduate seminar, PHIL-386, gave us a wonderful opportunity to launch this website. We are also grateful to Dr. Matt Burstein for his tech advice and to Patty Martin for her research assistance.
